News / Reserve your container space for Australia today


Tuesday 27th December 2011 – Saturday 7th January 2012

Don't miss out on the sailing trip of a lifetime to sail the Fireball World Championship 2012 off the Western coast of Australia. Warm and windy conditions are expected. Containers are being arranged from a number for Fireball associations worldwide.  These will of course be met by many boats from the host nation.  Currently a number of people have come forward to confirm there interest, but we know that more people are out there still to make their decisions!

Key Information Sources

Sam Brearey is organising the GBR containers please see the following information with regard to booking your container spot.

Proposed GBR Containers
  • 1 container = 9 boats
  • 2 containers = 19 boats
Current Prices:
  • Based on 9 boats the return cost will be £975 per boat
  • Based on 19 boats the return cost will be £904 per boat
These prices i am expecting to drop as the time comes slightly closer, due to negoiations of freight and sponsorship opportunities.

Having spoken to Noble Marine, there is around a £50 excess to pay on insurance to increase to the maximum liability cover, which the boys in Australia are looking to lower for the event (reference to the NOR).
I am also looking into insurance for the container and contents. Based on 9 boats with a value of £80,000 the insurance would be: £73.3 per boat, Or based on 19 boats with a value you of £168,000, the insurance would be: £57.10 per boat.
